Whether your case is a divorce, a shareholder dispute, a damages claim, or other type of litigation, chances are that a significant part of your litigation relates to money. Surprisingly, many lawyers are not required to be trained in these areas. CFLs receive unique training in financial areas that could make a significant difference in both the outcome of your case and in the efficiency with which it is handled.

The AACFL – Serving the Legal Community

The primary mission of the AACFL is to serve the community through its many programs. How is this accomplished? By promoting greater awareness and education to attorneys on the financial aspects of litigation. One end result will be a reduction in the need for court time or avoiding litigation altogether. A reduction in court time needed for these issues will reduce the work load of the courts allowing the justices to focus their valuable time more pressing matters. Other end results will include a way for the public to more easily distinguish the lawyers who have had advanced training, a more efficient process for the parties, and mentoring among lawyers and judges to create a more cooperative legal community.
